I’m trying to get my Save the Dates planned out for my July 2013 wedding. I’d like to send them right after the holidays!
The invitation suite I fell in love with is called Umi Love Note, which i thought was super cute since my fiance and I are both teachers!
However, I’d like to do save the date magnets that are slightly cheaper in price (but not in design!)
I saw these on Magnet Street and thought it went great with our potential invitations
My worry is that its just too “informal” and not appropriate for a wedding. We are incorporating cork boards into our wedding day as well as chalkboards so I thought this might be perfect. Or it might be too informal! What do you think?

@deetroitwhat: I am actually not a MI bride… that is the stock photo 🙂
Thanks for everyone’s opinions. I was getting hyper paranoid that they wouldn’t be seen as cute and would be seen as silly! Definitely makes me feel better!

Save-The-Date Cards are not supposed to be formal, I think you are fine!

My friend did save the date magnets, and i thought that they were wonderful! I love the idea! You should definitly go with it, plus i think that the save the dates are supposed to be a little less formal and a little more fun then the actual invite.

My Save-The-Date Cards were completely informal. We didn’t include our last names on the magnet and have a non professional picture of my Fiance giving me a piggy back ride.
We’re going for rustic/country theme for the wedding, so I’m incorporating a lot of chalk boards into the decor. I’m intending the invitations to be chalkboard themed as well, so I think an informal STD is perfectly fine.
It’s your wedding, so you can do what you want 🙂

I think those are cute since you’re incorporating cork boards.
